Andreas Gursky at Louisiana Museum in Humlebæk
The exhibition deals with photography and its boundaries. Many of Gursky’s pictures come close to the painterly, others appear highly photographic. With 45 of the artist’s mega-photographs and about 26 smaller photographs, Louisiana’s exhibition spans all of Gursky’s output right up to the very latest photographs that were presented at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, in the autumn of 2011. The exhibition thus gives the viewer the opportunity to follow the transformations and transformative power of the pictures over more than two decades. Gursky is an artist of the individual work – but over the last two years he has produced two series, Ocean, 2010, of which Ocean I and III are on show in the exhibition, and in 2011 another series of brand new works with the overall title Bangkok, six of which are included in the exhibition. This is the first time these photographs have been shown in a museum, or indeed in Europe at all.
The exhibition is curated by the director of the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Poul Erik Tøjner, in close dialogue with the artist.
